Reply with quote

Hi,

I have an input file

Code:
     FILE1       
RECORDS NUMBER      
1111        ABC   
1110        LMN   
1121        PQR
1123        XYZ


My requirement is to sort this file on the basis of 1st four bytes after skipping the first 2 header records. After sort, the output file should look like -

The header records should also be written to the output file.

Code:
     FILE1       
RECORDS NUMBER      
1110        LMN   
1111        ABC   
1121        PQR
1123        XYZ


Please help.

Thanks.

Try DATASORT

Code:
//STEP0100  EXEC  PGM=ICETOOL
//TOOLMSG   DD SYSOUT=*
//DFSMSG    DD SYSOUT=*
//IN        DD *
     FILE1
RECORDS NUMBER
1111        ABC
1110        LMN
1121        PQR
1123        XYZ
//OUT      DD  SYSOUT=*
//TOOLIN    DD *
  DATASORT FROM(IN) TO(OUT) HEADER(2) USING(CTL1)
//CTL1CNTL  DD *
  SORT FIELDS=(1,4,CH,A)

Hello,

As Pandora suggested the DATASORT , you can find more on such tricks by just clicking to the below link.

ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/storage/dfsort/mvs/sorttrck.pdf

For your question please see chapter "Sort detail records between headers and trailers" in detail with examples and explaination as to how this works.
